professional_vampire: Poor little Cracker Jack. He still doesn't trust hubby or me, because we took him to the vet yesterday. He's fine with us when we're sitting or lying down, but when we're standing up he gives us this "are you going to put me in that carrier again" look.On the plus side, he's eating, drinking and using the litterbox like a healthy kitteh should.
yobbery: The wireless cut over last night could not have gone better. We shut down the old at 11:55pm and all devices were online with the new system by 12:05am. We quickly canvased the hospital checking coverage, then just sat around munching snacks while waiting for trouble calls that never came. I was home and in bed by 4:00am.It has been an absolutely brutal 12 weeks. I'm having fun this morning reading all the empty congratulatory emails from the suits in the ivory tower. They set this timeline to cover their own asses (long story) knowing we has one single chance in hell of pulling it off. As of this morning they can all kiss my ass.I never want to do this again.[www.smugmug.com image 300x180]

Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: Thank you for that. I know it's something that will always be here, and I never know when it will hit hard. I tried explaining to the wife about it when it got really bad and I was talking to two different doctors over the course of two years about it. I told her it was like fighting a ghost. You know it's there, but you just can't see it or fight it. She didn't really understand until last year when we went through our surgical issues. She finally looked at me one day when she got done with therapy and told me she finally understood what I meant.
tigerose: Well, back frm my husband's Uncle's memorial service. Very short and upbeat. My father in law is supposed to visit with my bro-in law. *sigh* my father inlaw did not know me. And he just looked so bewildered. I hope he remembers my son. They used to be best buds.
Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: Finally got the truth out of THE MOTHER about how everything happened with shiatake coming to our home. ****Small thread jack alert****** I have suffered from clinical depression for years, and mom was there for a lot of it before I left for the military, but she hasn't seen much of me, but knows I still suffer from it. She said that when she saw how I was struggling with Sake' passing, she saw the same thing from when I was a kid and things got really bad for me. She was scared that I would slide back again after just coming out of it last year before the wife went through all her surgeries, but not come out of it like I did before. I was touched, but told her that it was something that happened and not anything that people who don't suffer from it go through when they lose a loved one. I think with everything we've been through as a family, including what the wife went and is going through, as well as losing my step dad last year, she's terrified herself of being helpless as things still try to even out and we find some semblance of normalcy in our crazy animal filled world. My daughter was the one who suggested the cat, mainly because she saw the words Maine Coon, and knew the wife wanted one, but also thought that since it was a male, it would bond with me. He's a loving cat, but I'm thinking he'll be more the wife's than mine. I told her it was OK, and as long as he keeps wanting belly skritches and head bumps, then everything will be fine. ****End of thread jack****

Taken last week, the poor things still had their thick winter coats. They are almost shed out already, their new summer coats are like velvet under the long hairy mess they had./Both my boys can trace their bloodlines back to the Godolphin Arabian.
maynerdkitty: She is beautiful, I love a flea bit grey. I have never been fond of Arabs though, they are pretty to look at but I don't seem to get along with any that I have met. Not sure why.
predle: tigerose: I heard somewhere that you aren't a rider until you've fallen off at least 7 times...gads, that mean's I'll be a rider if I fall off 3 more times?I guess that means I'm a rider at least 2 or 3 times over.

I was working from home the other day and got up to make some tea. Butter thought she should help me while I was gone...
Haven't felt well today and spent most of the day in bed so I am still not caught up but wanted to say Thank You to a very special person. You know who you are. Here is some Butter as a thanks for your kind and generous gift...
AlienDandelion: HAhaha.Wanted to share a hospital moment with you.So I was at work yesterday and I had gone up to one of the recovery towers to do some work.In this particular ward is a big male nurse, totally would not even make one think he is even a nurse the way he looks with his shoulder length curly hair and beard ;)Anyways I hear him ask one of his coworkers to whack him on the back between his shoulder blades and she very hesitantly gave him just a light slap.As I knew exactly why he needed this done, I went up and said "Allow me" and proceeded to give him 3 big hard hearty whacks on his back with the heels of my hands, hearing the phlegmn loosen up as he breathed (Asthma/lung issues: I remember my mom doing this for hours with me lying across her knees as she pummeled my back to loosen my lungs up). He turned around and with a surprised look on his face said "Oh! I thought it was someone else given the strength of those whacks! you sure pack a whallop for someone your size! thanks!" and proceeded to give me a high five and also comment how he's surprised I'm not a nurse myself. Hahahah.I run into things like this all the time at work. People are genuinely surprised how much knowledge I have on a variety of things, how seeing a lot of things happen at work don't phase me and how much I interact with patients every where I go.That and for some reason, I've been getting a lot of positive comments on my dandelion tattoo.I have no idea what's up with that.[encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com image 153x197][encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com image 259x194][fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net image 540x720]

lethological_lassie: Bathia_Mapes: kevinboehm: Name it whatever you like, it's not like it's going to listen.Not necessarily true. Some cats respond to the name you give them, others do not.I once called my kitten by saying "C'mere Milk!" and he trotted into the kitchen. It's often about the tone of voice and the sound of food or treats hitting the dish more than the name. ;)

gremlin1: RadicalEd: Arg! Ivan has been sneezy and snotty for awhile, but not enough that it's bothered him or slowed him down. I mentioned it at the vet and we're trying an allergy pill to see if it helps any. Only, my sweet darling has apparently been labeled an "aggressive cat" at the vet because he hates it so much. He doesn't like his ears or mouth touched, so trying to get an allergy pill down him is ridiculously hard. We had to scrap last night's pill because it got too soggy and tried again this morning. I think it went down...So my brilliant idea was to stop by the pet store on the way home today and get some of the Greenie's Pill Pockets. Smart, right? I also picked up some Hairball treatment treats of the same brand. Both Ivan and Tola got to try some of those when I got home.Aaaaaand like usual with name-brand treats/food, within ten minutes, Ivan puked it all back up on the carpet. Bonus was it was a lovely pea green shade this time. My biggest worry however was when Tola continually tried to toss something - turns out something was stuck in her throat and I had a huge moment of panic thinking she couldn't breathe. It's been awhile since then, and I've been monitoring her and she's back to her old self, no damage done. She's just being her - yowling and trying to eat plastic to get attention.I get the feeling the Pill Pocket and the pill are going to end up on the carpet tonight if we try it...Tola in the garbage bag full of clothes during our first big move:[img.photobucket.com image 384x306]Ivan, the Queen of France:I got one of these from the vet for Gremie. It's a pill popper, you load the pill, put it in his mouth and push the plunger. With Gremie you have to get it right the first time or you have to wait about 20 minutes to try again. Believe it or not I found it easier than doing it by hand.[i877.photobucket.com image 216x288]
lilyspad: Salem Witch:Is that a med-alert tag on her collar?? curious...
AlienDandelion: all chatty and sharing
tigerose: Radicaled try taking a syringe of water and giving it a squirt in kitties mouth after you pop the pill in there. That is what my vet does. I also haz a pill popper..open kitteh mouth.place pill popper, loaded with pill to the back of mouth.depress plunger..and ya know..the burrito thing works well too. Less blood loss..as for the vet..let me tell you about the time they came back with Eli scruffed..and they were wearing leather gauntlets ...

kevinboehm: Name it whatever you like, it's not like it's going to listen.
bongmiester: does anyone actually read caturday threads?
bongmiester: or are they like playboy magazines?
kevinboehm: GoldSpider: So I decided this past week that this house is far too quiet without the pitter-patter of a kitter-cat, and put in an application to adopt an 8 month old kitten from a local rescue organization. Is it considered bad luck/form to post pictures of him and start thinking about names before I actually have him?Name it whatever you like, it's not like it's going to listen.
syzygy whizz: tigerose: We have an Oppossum problem. There is a huge, possum who I have seen several times in the daytime..bright sun...very unusual. It doesnt look sick..in fact it is stout! Could be a pregnant female...is there a way to discourage to frm roaming my yard. I do not want Eli tackling this marsupial monster!Wasn't a problem as such...but looked out my window early Wednesday morning to see 3 mule deer strolling down my driveway.One of them looked at my incipient daffodils with "Mmmm...looks tasty..." expression and I found myself telling it "Don't even THINK about it!"Looked at me with a "Huh?" expression...and if deer can shrug I swear it would have done so.It turned and followed its buddies into my backyard (where they are welcome to eat all the weeds they want!).Riktor, Wimsey and Raven were watching them with great interest. I wonder what the deer must have smelled like to them...they were fascinated by these big critters.Told them "Forget it, kids...they're too big for you."OlderGuy: tigerose: We have an Oppossum problem.

I do not want Eli tackling this marsupial monster!If female, it might be carrying the young in it,s pouch.. when they are born, they are tiny.. and stay in the pouch until they can get around on their own ..mammaries are in the pouch.. had a possum show up in my garage where I used to live.. stood there by my feet looking at me, belly dragging the ground.. figured that she might be looking for a safe place to have her brood.. didn't know about the pouch routine.. found a cardboard box, put some straw and grass clippings in it and put it down in front of her: she climbed in and lay down.. put the box in a corner.. two days later there were 11 babies in there with her.. mini- possums.. with teeth and all.. she stayed ...
StranahansBarracuda: Haven't read the thread yet. It's been a hell of a week. Could I have some happy thoughts and love sent to my friends who lost their 5 year old dog, Fender, very unexpectedly on Wednesday? He got the runs last Friday and it all went downhill from there. Possibly cancer, definitely renal failure. Fender was one of those perpetually happy, easy going dogs who wagged his tail the whole time he was ill. I told them about the Rainbow bridge and that he'd be there with their other dogs who have passed. Thanks y'all :)Fender:[i50.tinypic.com image 240x320]

akimbotoo: Snuffybud: Hi all! I hope I didn't miss much last weekend, I was busy putting a Pergo floor in one of the bedrooms.I had a helper[i380.photobucket.com image 640x480]And our supervisor[i380.photobucket.com image 480x640]Midway through Saturday afternoon Mrs Snuffybud grabbed Desi and stuck him up on the shelf in the closet just to get him out of the way. He loved it, he just sat there and watched all the work go on below him!Your helper and supervisor are so adorable! I love how they are so interested in what is going on!
Type my Condolences to Debby7813 at ft of pg 2 on recent departure of Dinah. Retrospective excellent. Will try to recall Summerlands for future use; sounds very good. Agree with CaptSacto's words just above where I type: I'm so very sorry for your loss. May she live forever in your heart. All those we've loved who've left do so.

mousiebelle: Otay, I has a picture question. How do you get the side-by-side comparison type pics? I tried to create one earlier today and failed miserably :( I don't have PS... I tried with a free photo thingummy online... It had all sorts of stuffs to animate pics and everything else peoples around here do, just couldn't figure out the side-by-side type thing. I want the ability for around here, but I need it for our business pics, too. Thoughts?[farm9.staticflickr.com image 375x500]
